From June 2002 to June 2003, Crackerbox.net hosted a series of weekly deathmatches pitting songs by basement recording artists up against each other. Fans voted for their favorite each week. Waiting for the winner was a gold medal, presidential phone calls, generous gifts from our sponsors, and all the other spoils that come with a blood-soaked victory. But pity the poor loser, who became destined to face a lifetime of eternal shame. This compilation features the big winners, underdogs and fan favorites.
"They're not all winners, but as it's so often said, they are all winners. And in the singular case of Crackerbox, that perennially stupid statement is actually true! ... These tracks don't have a fuck lot in common beyond cheap recording and a profound lack of seriousness, if not downright silliness. With few exceptions, it's all good fun and how often can you say that about a compilation?"
